Telecom and Vodafone take note: 50% of iPhone buyers switched network

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 2-Jul-2007 22:08

This is seriously something any mobile operator would drool over: according to an article on news.com more than 500,000 700,000 Apple iPhone were sold from Friday 6pm through end of business Sunday.

Now, selling 500,000 units of any new product on its first weekend is some serious business. But what is even more interesting is that 50% of buyers were switching from other mobile operator to AT&T, the company with the exclusive deal with Apple for the launch. And this is for a two year contract.

Apple iPhone

Both Vodafone and Telecom New Zealand should look into this as something to work on for the next six months. I am not sure if Telecom New Zealand would have a chance though, even with their plans to launch a WCDMA network here, seeing that rumours are flying that Vodafone Group PLC is working with Apple to launch the iPhone in Europe - which I believe would of course include the Vodafone New Zealand operation sometime later.
